Did You Know?


Entertainers were part of the Army Special Services who had a motto of "Entertainment for the Soldier, by the Soldier". All the ranks were enlisted, so Buckles would have been enlisted although his characters may be officers so Hogan should not have referred to him as major. Many famous actors have been part of this service which began in 1774 and was reformed in 1940 for the war. See more »


Right after Hogan and Klink go back to Klink's guests in his quarters, and you see the previous goof where Klink does not have his monocle, the Major stands up to talk to Klink and Hogan. He is holding a glass in his left hand. When the camera changes angle and you notice Klink now has his monocle again, the Major is holding his glass in his right hand. See more »

An American actor is shot down by the Germans
3 September 2014 | by See all my reviews

In this rather humorous episode, the German have shot down a plane that is occupied by American actor, Major Buckles (Alan Oppenheimer), and Klink starts preparations to have Buckles star in a German propaganda film at the prison camp.

At first the film is to be featuring how the prisoners are so well treated by their German Commandant wish of course will star Klink as himself. But soon it will change to where Hogan is the director of the film with the purpose of blowing up a strategic bridge located not far from camp. And during the production we can expect some funny situations as the filming of the movie begins.

At first I was not sure that this episode was going to be of any interest. But the way that Oppenheimer played his part as the actor that hams up any scene, the story started to grow. Even though the ending is so far-fetched that no one will believe, it was still a nice get-a-way from the worries of the day. Good watch.
